i have recently found out that my ancestors belonged
to the JUBILEE ST. (?) synagogue in the East End
(White Chapel, perhaps?). Apparently, my gg-uncle
Abraham GLASSMAN was very active in this synagogue.

i'm wondering if this synagogue still exists today,
and if not, if the old records >from this synagogue
would be available at any current synagogue.

Re: The Name Yvonne #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hi, Julius and all Genners,

I, too, thought that Yvonne was related to Ivan, etc.
until I researched the etemology and found the
following:

Yvonne is the feminine of Yvon, Yvette is the feminine
of Yves. Yvon is French >from the Germanic Iv [or
Ivo], which means Yew. Yves also means Yew, and was
also a saint's name.

On the other hand, Johannes is the Latin form of the
Greek name Ioannes, which is derived >from the biblical
Yochanan meaning "G-d is gracious". Johann [German],
John [English], Sean [Irish], Ian [Scottish], Eoin
[Gaelic], Ivan [Czech, Croatian, Slavic & Russian] and
Jean [French] are all variants of the same name.

Feminine versions of this name include:
Johanna, Joanna, Seanna, Ivana, Jeanne.

So Sean Connery, Ivana Trump, Eoin Colfer and Ivan
Rodriguez's given names have nothing to do with the
stage name Yves Montand [who was born Ivo Livi, not
Levi, - but that's another story.]

I'm sure that whomever chose Yvonne for a girl's
secular name thought the name exotic or romantic.
Hebrew names that might be a match include Yocheved
because it begins with a Y or even Chava [as Eva, its
translation into Latin languages, was a common name
but pronounced similarly [EE-va] to Yvonne [EE-von].

And then there's the usual - no reason or translation
or equilvalent in the family at all, someone just
liked it and her Hebrew/Yiddish name was Golda.

Best,
Shellie Wiener

I am looking for the origins of the name Yvonne. Is
it a common Jewish name or is there a Jewish male or
female equivalent?

In Dayna's email she asked about an East End synagogue and her gg uncle's
connection with it. I replied privately and suggested the following
websites and
received a reply saying that she found her gg uncle on the Jeffrey Maynard
site! I thought perhaps these websites might be of interest to others.

In response to the message >from "Caroline" <cfb@pobox.com> on Wed, 4 May
2005, it is certainly possible for libraries to subscribe to the full
200-year archive. I have staff borrowing privileges at the University of
Melbourne library, so I have even been able to access it >from my computer at
home. The State Library of Victoria makes it available onsite at selected
workstations. The National Library of Australia in Canberra lists it as an
electronic resource in its catalogue, but access is available onsite only. I
am confident that other libraries in Australia and other parts of the world
must have it too. Presumably it costs the library quite a lot to subscribe,
so don't expect small local libraries to have it.

Isadore RAKOFF #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All:
Can anyone tell me more about my RAKOFF ancestors. I have talked to a
cousin, but he couldn't tell me much. He did tell me that his
grandfather died somewhere in the late 30's, and that he had a clothing
store called Isadore of Paris.I would love to get an exact date of
death for him. He was brother to David Rakoff my great-grandfather.
Isadore before coming to america had about 3 or 4 kids with the first
wife which he left behind,remarried when he came to america and had
More kids.First Wife's name was Bernice WOLFSON, and I am assuming she
died in russia. The kids eventually made it to america. Their names
from what I have been able to dig up are Helen, Sonya, Ben/Bernard, and
Samuel. Helen married a brown, sonya married sidney TUDRIN. Any
information on this family is appreciated. I do not know the second
wife's name of isadore. They would all have lived in new york. From
what the cousin was able to tell me, my great-great uncle was not a
very nice person. He was sort of a dapper dan and a womanizer, not to
mention the fact that he did leave his kids behind when he left russia.
it wasn't until years later when he finally sent for them under the
pressure of his brother david. That was probably around 1925 and the
youngest child helen was about 10 years old. Also the second wife did
not want anything to do with his other kids, so eventually they were
living with my great-grandparents David & Anna Rakoff until they were
old enough to be on their own. So if anyone can shed some more light on
this family please contact me via e-mail.

Today on the radio I caught the end of an interview with Nina Sundell,
director of the Holocaust Awareness Institute at the University of

importance of survival and re-creating life. More information about the
book is at http://www.du.edu/cjs/hai/hai_letters.htm .

The full interview will be broadcast again at 7 pm Mountain Time at
http://www.cpr.org/listen/ . You can also listen anytime later (after 8 pm)
at http://www.cpr.org/co_matters/ -- scroll down the page to May 5, or
